The 61-69 Lincoln Continental is an icon of America's automotive history. Each year has a unique look, but they're all just about the same under the skin, with a robust unibody construction, coil springs in the front, and leaf springs out back. While they ride nice and smooth in factory trim, they just sit too tall for our tastes!
We've teamed up with Choppin' Block to give you a 100% bolt-on solution to getting that 'slab on the ground. Up front, a set of tubular upper and lower control arms give you revised geometry to ride properly at lowered heights, and at the same time they'll give you new Moog ball joints and Daystar urethane bushings to replace your worn-out stock stuff.
Out back, the leaf springs get ditched in favor of a triangulated 4 link. The brackets for this link bolt directly into the factory pickup points on the subframe and axle, giving you a solid system that will ride and handle better than stock. New KYB shocks are included at all four corners, and of course all of the necessary mounting hardware comes with this package to save you trips to the store.
When you step up to a Stage 3 air management system, you get automatic ride height control- press a button and your car will lift or drop to one of three pre-sets! The Air Lift Performance 3P system has a handheld controller with a full-color display to show you the pressure in each corner, and it also has Bluetooth wireless built right in- connect your iPhone or Android device and control your car remotely! 3/8" DOT-approved air line and fittings are included to make the installation smooth and simple. Here's everything that's included:
- Choppin' Block BOLT ON front and rear suspension kits
- Slam Specialties SS-7 air bags
- Air Lift Performance 3P control package
- 3/8" line and fittings
- TWO 5 gallon aluminum air tanks
- DUAL Viair 480C air compressors
- Complete wiring kit
- Water trap
- Mounting hardware and instructions
The Air Lift 3P uses pressure sensors, rather than height sensors, to set each corner's height. With a pressure-based system, you trade off some accuracy for simplicity. Air pressure doesn't always equal height, so in some situations you'll end up needing to manually adjust your vehicle to level it back out- like if you have the trunk loaded, a REALLY heavy passenger, etc. This is only common in extreme situations- for most day-to-day driving a pressure-based system will keep you rolling just fine. If you decide later down the road you'd like to upgrade to height sensors, you can just pick up the Height Sensor Upgrade Package, change a few settings, and you're good to go!
